Cat Freaks Out at Doorbell Only 98 Times on Halloween

OGALLALA, Nebraska - Another Halloween has passed and one cat in Nebraska is celebrating an accomplishment - he only freaked out 98 times whenever trick-or-treaters rang the doorbell last night. Still watching the front door expecting the noise to come back at anytime, Bobo the cat felt a sense of pride for staying strong in the face of horror. "Last night was rough," he recounted, "the bells would chime and ungodly creatures demanded bribes." His resolve to remain calm when threatened with possible imminent destruction will be tested again tonight when his caregiver orders pizza delivery.

5 Warning Signs Your Cat Is in a Gang

Current estimates suggest there are hundreds of millions of cats in the world and a growing percentage of them - according to our researchers - are involved in cat-gang activity. Is your feline friend affiliated with those who would swat away law and order from our communities? Heed these crucially important five warning signs that your cat may be involved in a gang: 

1. “M” on Forehead
Long considered an innocent trait of tabby cats, an "M" on a feline's forehead may foretell membership in the Meow Mafia - the largest international cat crime syndicate with millions of members worldwide. Kittens are often initiated into the Meow Mafia by having the “M” design tattooed on their heads at birth to remind others of their gang affiliation.

2. Resists Stomach Rubs
Catnip is often smuggled across neighborhood lines by carrying the intoxicating substance around the underbelly of household pets. When your cat bites and scratches upon having her belly rubbed, it may be out of habit because she is accustomed to smuggling "the nip" and protecting her illicit cargo.

3. Runs Around Crazily at 2am
Think your cat running around like a wild man at 2am is just an idiosyncrasy of the species? Think again. Some cats, unable to resist sampling the catnip they smuggle, are known to have overactive nocturnal episodes while caregivers sleep. 

4. Stares Out the Window for Hours
Under the guise of "watching birds," veteran cat gangsters may be asked to keep watch for potential catnip drop-offs in the neighborhood. Large windowsills provide the best vantage point for monitoring catnip trafficking. 

5. Carries a Sword at All Times
While this is obviously the most ambiguous sign of gang activity, carrying a sword might possibly suggest your cat is prone to violence. However, since most cats casually carry swords for a multitude of innocent reasons, be sure to check the other warning signs first before jumping to conclusions. It would be ridiculous to confuse a typical, everyday cat behavior for something gang-related.

Black Cat Tired of Halloween Jokes

ENID, Oklahoma – Halloween may still be two weeks away, but one black cat in Oklahoma has already had enough of jokes about the spooky holiday. “Please stop approaching me 500 times a day to remind me ‘my holiday’ is coming up,” mewed Midnight, “I have a calendar on my phone.” The raven-colored cat was quick to point out the same humans who usually avoid him now relish in asking him to “do the yowling thing” on command. “It’s like I went from being too unlucky to even cross the street in front of someone to being everyone’s puppet.” Midnight is scheduled to try on a precious candy-corn cat costume tomorrow.
